British author and political commentator Douglas Murray stares at me blankly on the computer screen, with what may be exhaustion. He is not particularly alert, nor is he smiling. Whether he’s writing controversial opinion columns, debating with liberal luminaries or sparring with opponents on Twitter (355,000 followers) – one could say that this brilliant intellectual, a prominent neoconservative ideologue, is difficult to challenge. I raise fraught issues, ask him to address the elephants he places in the china shop of liberal-progressive discourse, and he doesn’t flinch. I suggest that he is Islamophobic, and he keeps a straight face. A perfect baby face, by the way. But one thing still makes him lose his temper, at least according to his own standards: Wikipedia. Specifically, the entry written about him.
